Christmas is so close now! It’s no surprise that we’ve been inundated with gorgeous collections of makeup to give as great gifts. I am absolutely loving them all and I genuinely want to own all of them myself.
If you’re still stuck on what to buy someone for Christmas or what to ask for Christmas still, then perhaps this post about these amazing Jouer lip collections can help.
Jouer – Best of Nudes Lip Crème Collection
A nude lip is something that I think can suit everyone and this collection of eight different shades will ensure there will be at least one shade that will become your new favourite. A nude lip is also a great compliment to a more intense eye look and during the festive period I know we’ll all be rocking more intense eyeshadows.
I bought both of these lip sets on the Beauty Bay website. There are two other sets in the collection that I didn’t purchase (really wish I could have) and they are, “Limited Edition Best of Metallics Mini Lip Crème Gift Set” and the “Limited Edition Best of Deeps Mini Lip Crème Gift Set”.
The best of nudes collection is packaged up in a large pretty box, adorned with silver. The silver appears to be holographic in some lighting, so it’s really beautiful and makes an impressive gift. It’s the perfect shape for easy wrapping too! I hate it when I have to wrap something that is awkwardly shaped, I prefer it when my gifts are wrapped up nice and neat. Or, these will make a perfect gift for yourself!
The lip crèmes are held firmly in place by a slide out cardboard tray and they are easy to remove from it. I particularly like that the shade names are displayed clearly beside each one. Even the tray they are contained in is pretty. This set is truly gorgeous.
The back of the box shows off each of the eight shades too and displays the ingredients clearly.
These were priced at a very fair £30. Although they are only miniatures and not full size, you get a generous amount of product (2ml) and it gives you an idea of what to purchase full size once you’ve finished them. This particular collection is sadly out of stock now on Beauty Bay, but hopefully this collection will be available elsewhere.
All of these shades feel so good on your lips and I found that they didn’t dry my lips out at all. The Jouer lip crèmes aren’t sticky at all and dry down completely matte, they seem to be transfer proof too (which is a huge plus). Two of the shades are metallic though, Papaye and Rosé. All of the lip crème’s are very pigmented too, and apply beautifully, the small doe foot applicator makes applying them effortless and precise.
Not only do they look beautiful on, they smell absolutely gorgeous too! As soon as I opened one I was greeted with a lovely sweet aroma, they really smell a lot like sweets.
These are swatches of the eight shades of Jouer lip crèmes on my extremely pale skin. I’ve numbered them above for ease of identification.

Jouer – Best of Lip Toppers Mini Gift Set
A lip topper is an essential ‘must have’ in your makeup collection, they can really transform any matte lipstick into a gorgeous shimmery gloss. These seven beautiful shades really compliment the matte collection well. I’m sure they would look great over any matte lipstick though.
These are packaged up in exactly the same way as the mattes, only they have a gold embellishment. Again, they’d make a fabulous gift for someone.. or for yourself!
For £29 you get seven shades.. so you’re getting one less shade than the matte collection. These lip toppers are still available to purchase on the Beauty Bay website, so if you want them I’d hurry.
The formula on these Jouer lip toppers is not as sticky as I had been expecting, usually I find glosses really sticky.. this surprised me, as they are not sticky at all really. They have a good amount of slip to them and even work perfectly on their own as a gloss, if you don’t want to put it over anything. These smell amazing too.
I didn’t swatch these, but if you’d like to see a particular one swatched or all of them swatched.. just let me know and I will do that.

Final Thoughts on the Jouer Lip Collections
I am in love with both of these Jouer lip collections and I would definitely buy Jouer products again. I recommend these sets both as a gift for someone else and as a gift for yourself. You deserve it!
